UF Health Cancer Center Drug Discovery Program

David Ostrov, Ph.D., and the UF Health Cancer Center Drug Discovery Program use X-ray crystallography to identify drugs that bind with key proteins to potentially enhance immune response against cancer. The team used HiPerGator to narrow down the list of… Read More

Prof. Bryan Kolaczkowski

One of the major justifications of large-scale genomic sequencing is that it will ultimately yield important insights into the causes of human disease. But how can we systematically move from an understanding of the genome to viable biomedical therapies? Dr.… Read More

Prof. Adrian Roitberg

GPUs (Graphical Processing Units) have recently been recognized for their impressive computational potential. Taking advantage of this mostly untapped resource requires strong collaboration between computational scientists and domain scientists. A team of programmers at Nvidia (Dr. Scott Legrand) and the… Read More

Prof. Haiping Cheng

In her studies of the boundary between the bulk properties of matter and the quantized world of atoms and molecules, Dr. Cheng has an almost unquenchable demand for CPU cycles. The molecular dynamics simulations carried out by her group require… Read More

Prof. Eric Ford

Dr. Ford arrived at UF in the Fall of 2007. As a new faculty member, he faced the usual challenges of establishing a research group at a new institution. As a theoretical and computational astrophysicist, he faced the additional challenge… Read More

Prof. Paul Avery

Dr. Avery was the original HPC Center investor. His initial $200,000 investment combined with commitments from the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) and Office of Information Technology (OIT) for staffing, additional equipment, and machine-room improvements marked the creation of the HPC Center… Read More

Prof. Youping Chen

Research areas that Dr. Chen focuses on are theoretical and computational mechanics, multiscale mechanics of biological materials, and the tailoring and design of nano/micro-materials through computer simulations. Current projects being performed by Dr. Chen and her students include: Reformulation of… Read More

Prof. S. Balachandar

Dr. Sivaramakrishnan “Bala” Balachandar is the chairman and William F. Powers Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida. Dr. Balachandar’s research concentrates on computational fluid science (CFD), large-scale simulation of complex flows, transition and turbulence, multiphase… Read More

Prof. Jing Guo

The driving force for electronics in the last half century has been the continuous scaling of transistors. Silicon transistors in a wide variety of devices are being replaced at molecular scales. While there are some similarities between nanoscale and microscale… Read More

Prof. Aravind Asthagiri

Dr. Asthagiri is a research professor at the University of Florida’s Chemical Engineering department. His work focuses on the simulation of novel materials from an atomistic level. He uses a range of methods to scale from highly accurate quantum mechanics-based methods… Read More
